My nose was definitely shortened. I'm hard to having a longer nose, but now I feel that it's pulling my top lip upward making it look stiff and awkward. It's only been 10 days since surgery. Is this normal? I hope that my lip does not stay upturned like this!
Nose Feels Too Short and Looks Like Lip is Being Pulled Upward Only 10 Days Post Rhinoplasty?

It is a normal process after the surgery. Changes and stiffness are part of the post-operative process, that are indicative to healing. Give this area time to heal.

It is not uncommon to experience the feeling of tightness, or for the nose to be turned upward after surgery. Most of this has to do with the swelling related to the surgery. It may take weeks to months until the swelling has decreased enough that the "pulling" feeling that you are experiencing disappears. The tilting of the nose should improve as well.
Make sure you have close follow ups with your surgeon.
